Geared to go : a workbook for coaching new drivers

Description

In 2003, Alberta introduced a Graduated Driver Licensing (GDL) program for new drivers. The intent of GDL is to improve road safety by extending the learning stage, regardless of age. New drivers will gain valuable experience in driving and handling a vehicle under low-risk conditions. Then, when they are ready, they will move on to more demanding and complex situations. As part of GDL, Alberta Transportation has created Geared To Go: A Workbook for Coaching New Drivers. This is NOT intended to take the place of professional driver training. It does not cover every detail of the driving process. Alberta Transportation strongly encourages new drivers to take a professional Driver Education and Training Course. Practical, behind-the-wheel instruction is provided by qualified driver instructors. These instructors are licensed by Alberta Transportation under the Driver Training and Driver Examination Regulation.
